  • Episode Description
  • "Charlie's Dinosaur" Everyone at the library is excited by the Touch a Dinosaur program. As Lionel and Leona speculate as to just what sort of dinosaur it could be, Theo announces that he'd like to read a book. He reads Charlie's Dinosaur, an original story by Sarah Durkee (one of the show's writers), in which a boy presents a bird as his dinosaur project. Birds are said to be direct descendants of dinosaurs. Skits throughout the story focus on synonyms of the word "big." "Here Come the Aliens" Lionel is excited by aliens, but Leona isn't so sure. Lionel reads her a funny story called Here Come the Aliens, written and illustrated by Colin McNaughton. The story focuses on various types of aliens and just how different they are from us. Skits throughout the story focus on words starting with the letter "q."moreless

    • Theo: Charlie's Dinosaur, by Sarah Durkee. Lionel: Oh, she's good. Leona: Oh yeah, I like Sarah Durkee. Naturally, the lions would like Sarah Durkee's stories, as Durkee is one of the writers for the program and Charlie's Dinosaur is an original story written for the program.
